Important: Testing Changes Begin Summer 2021

Apex students are now required to Zoom all Unit Test sessions to meet the adult school’s requirements for accountability. Your camera must be on during the entire test period. The procedure is as follows:

  1. Summer Zoom test sessions will be offered Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9:30 – 11:30 am and 6:00 – 8:00 pm.
  2. The instructor will not admit students after 11:00 am and 7:30 pm.
  3. Find the link to sign up for testing below. Do not sign up to test if you have written work outstanding for that unit.
  4. Once your written work has been verified, you will receive a test confirmation email that includes the Zoom link to your chosen session.
If this is your first test session, or there is a new teacher, be prepared to show a photo ID to the instructor.
  1. You may be in the waiting room for a few minutes while others ahead of you are helped.
  2. While you are testing: 
    • Remember, you are allowed to use any notes you have taken during the test including Study Guides. You may not get assistance from other people.
    • Your camera must remain on as the instructor will be checking on you periodically while you are working.
  3. Once you have completed your test, you may leave the session.
  4. During Test sessions, instructors are also available for questions regarding written assignments or other class related issues. 
    • Prior to requesting Zoom help, email apexspecial1@gmail.com to let the instructor know what the issue is. That way, they can prepare to assist you and send you the Zoom link.
    • As others may be testing at the same time, your patience is very important.
    • If the session is full when you show up, wait in the waiting room where the instructor can let you know how long the wait may be, or you can try again later.

Written Work Submission:

  • All written work must be submitted online to this email address: apexspecial1@gmail.com
  • You must include your Full Name, Class Name, and Activity# in the subject line of your email.
  • For example, Mary Jones, World History B (or semester 2), 2.1.7
  • If your work is handwritten on paper, consider taking a CLEAR and legible photo of the document and emailing that.
  • If we cannot read your work, we may send it back with a rewrite request. 
  • Written work can also  be submitted through Apex itself. See this link for more information: http://cdn.apexlearning.com/documents/BP_Assignment-Sheets.pdf 
  • If you are finished with a class except for tests, we will be checking to see that all journals, practices, and projects have been completed before we add a new class.

Quizzes & Tests:

  • Quizzes and Tests allow for three tries only
  • Be sure to study between each failure.
  • If you do not pass a quiz on the third try, email us at apexspecial1@gmail.com
  • If you do not pass a test and your overall score for that unit is below 70%, you will be required to do extra credit to make up for the point deficit.
  • We will allow progress to the next activity/lesson but no additional retakes.
